Commentating team C.L. Party and Chris Riddle were introduced to kick off CWF SHOUT TO THE TOP with Miss Party then introducing PWI President William L. Cross, who had advertised an announcement about the future of the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title. Cross told the world about the Kernodle Brothers Tag Team Tournament in early May, along with the two-day Don Kernodle 69th Birthday Bash! Information for the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament was then shared, along with the blockbuster announcement that the winner of the 2019 Weaver Cup Tournament will ALSO WIN the vacant CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Championship!
The masked Corporate Number Dad entered first with Number Braaah to take on CWF Rising Generation League Champion "Cowboy" Kool Jay in non-title singles action. Despite his lack of a working steam iron, Corporate Number Dad did eventually get ready to wrestle, several minutes into the match. The CWF Sheriff continued his streak of fire, pinning the veteran Corporate Number Dad for the opening match win.
Big Bellamy Koga entered next to take on Redemption's Michael McAllister in a singles bout. Koga started strong, mixing up his offense again and pummelling his opponent in the process. Bellamy Koga delivered furious flurries of feet and fists and set the veteran McAllister back on his heels a couple of times, but veteran wiles rolled out of the ring to clear his head before resuming battle with the bigger Koga. McAllister kept going forward after he finally reversed direction of the match, beating the hot prospect by pinfall.
The Pride of Pacific Palasades Number Braaah made his way back to the ring to face Cain Justice one-on-one in front of Twitch and the world. The new-look laid-back and much more in control Justice took his time, even offered his opponent the up spot on the referee's position only to find Number Braaah riding his back like a surfboard. Justice didn't lose his composure, he actually repaid the favor and continued to punish his opponent like he was owed a huge sum of money. After being stretched, twisted and forced into several unnatural positions, Number Braaah tapped out to give Cain Justice the win.
Corruption's Dirty Daddy entered next to take on Redemption's Nick Richards in singles action, and Ethan A. Sharpe came along for "moral support". Richards started strong and had Dirty Daddy doubting his own personal hygiene at one point, but with a little help regained control of the bout and began to torment his familiar foe. With the time limit expiring, Sharpe stepped up to give Dirty Daddy the opportunity of a lifetime, which he accepted and used to win the bout by pinfall. Richards discovered his mouth busted afterwards and made a point to mention Sharpe would see him again.
CWF Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Champions Donald J. BitDon and Otto Schwanz hit the ring with Khan O'Kelly to take on "TKO" Teddy Ireland Jr. and rookie Adrian "Action" Jackson in non-title tag team action. The young fan favorites began strong with "TKO" going to the top ropes early and Jackson showing off his strength to two of the biggest guys in the area. Schwanz went into a wonderful display of joint manipulation, set to his own brand of song, all while inflicting punishment to his opponents. The will was there, the fire was there, but this was not the time for the Mid-Atlantic Tag Champions to take a loss to two "young lions" and they manhandled their way to a pinfall win.
PWI President William L. Cross entered with the mic and announced that the seeding into the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament would be determined in most cases by actual qualifying matches, but then went on to announce that the 2018 Weaver Cup Champion "Southern Savior" John Sklyer was entered into the tournament. He then introduced "the 1st" Ric Converse and suggested that winning the Weaver Cup would be a fitting way to begin yet another CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Championship reign when Smith Garrett decided to drop in and question authority once again. After a back and forth between Garrett and Converse, Cross announced that the FANS would actually choose an entrant to the 2019 Johnny Weaver Memorial Tournament this year, for the first time ever.
With Coach Gemini doing commentary at ringside, All Star "Ace" Arik Royal entered and introduced himself before his singles opponent Mike Mars made his way to the ring. A regulation Hoss Fight erupted and both men beat the tar out of each other from bell to bell. Royal had his moments to shine but Mars kept returning to his feet with fire in his eyes. Mars got a second wind and ran Royal around the ring for a while and appeared to be in firm control of the bout after the twenty-five minute mark, but the surprising "Ace" Arik Royal flipped the scenario and turned the match around for a pinfall win over big Mike Mars.
Corruption's Ethan Alexander Sharpe entered with Dirty Daddy to challenge CWF Worldwide Television Champion "Rampaging Beast" Aaron Biggs in the scheduled main event. Sharpe held up the challenge by taking a beating for the first five minutes before employing a hit and run strategy to give himself a chance to breathe. Sharpe looked to be setting up a title change but when the time came to make it happen, Nick Richards ran in from the back and dropped Dirty Daddy like a bad habit seconds before Biggs planted Sharpe into the canvas for the pin.
Sharpe wouldn't exit following the main event, bellowing and complaining loudly to the officials as Dirty Daddy staggered toward the curtain. Richards shouted that he told Sharpe he'd see him again, did he want to fight? The referee agreed to a tag team match and fourteen seconds after ringing the opening bell, the referee called for the final bell with Biggs winning for his team by pinfall. If you blinked...
